I love pumpkin in just about everything – soups, stews, smoothies, oatmeal and baked goods. Naturally, I jumped at the chance to work on a sponsored post that I get to create a recipe with pumpkin. You’re going to love this Vegan Pumpkin Gingerbread and it has no added oil!
Sam’s Clubs is where I purchased the pumpkin for my recipe. They have a bi-monthly magazine called Healthy Living Made Simple. While all of their suggestions for making the most of holiday calories aren’t vegan, there are some great tips that we all can use.
In my pumpkin gingerbread, we’re actually using 3 of Healthy Living Made Simple‘s tips. I’m making individual portions in mini muffin tins, adding in fiber-rich pumpkin and whole wheat to make them more filling, and pumpkin is doing double duty and replacing the fat too.
I used pumpkin for all the oil and these can be slightly underbaked if you want them extra moist. They will be pretty moist on their own, but they will dry out faster than baked goods that contain oil. I used paper liners so I was able to skip oiling the pan and saved a few more calories.
The gingerbread is very simple to make. In a large bowl you’ll combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. Then you’ll measure out all the wet ingredients and combine in a smaller bowl.
Make sure to mix well to incorporate the brown sugar or coconut sugar. Often, I’ll use my 4-cup measuring cup and add the cup measurements in first, then top off with the teaspoon or tablespoons. This reduces the amount of dishes I have to wash and sometimes I’m just lazy!
Then you’ll add the wet ingredients to the dry and scoop into your muffin tins. I use a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop to make sure each mini muffin is the same size. Bake for about 13 to 15 minutes and your whole house will smell delicious.
